  • How To Handle Conflict In A Relationship  By : Porche Reingold -
    It does not matter whether you are dating, newlyweds, or a couple that has been married for years. Conflicts will inevitably occur in relationships, and healthy conflicts are a sign of a healthy relationship.

  • Alone, Who Are You?  By : Kim Olver -
    Relationships generally begin when both people are in the “Alone Stage,” although I am aware that often affairs begin when one or both partners are involved with someone else.

  • Keeping Love and Romance Alive In Your Relationship  By : Ken Snowie
    Almost every love story begins like a fairy tale. Relationship beginnings are always incredible and they can often experience a renaissance following wedding, honeymoon, or even a special anniversary.

  • How To Know If He/She Is The One  By : Kim Olver -
    It is my firm belief that if you are seeking a life partner, you need to be clear about what it is you are looking for—what is important to you.

    If you’ve had more than a few failed relationships, then that’s actually a good thing because it will help you narrow your focus. You probably will develop a list of what you don’t want and from that list, you can turn the "don’t wants" into qualities and characteristics that you do want.

    My 21 year-old son is currently finding...

  • What’s The Point? Understanding Woman Speak  By : Jason Flintstone -
    Women and men communicate differently with women being more verbal and vocal and men not so much. Women are also much more emotional and many would "argue" speak an entirely different language altogether. And some (okay, most) would insist that they encode what they mean or are trying to say behind frivolous words and phrases.

    We all know how great it feels to find the mate of your dreams and sharing your life and all its special moments with someone special that we can’t wait to share our good news and our good "fortune" with others.

  • Managing The Pain Of Abusive Relationships  By : Kim Olver -
    How many times have you said, “I didn’t have a choice?” This is a phrase that is uttered by many to justify their behavior or complain about their life circumstances.

  • You Can Improve Your Relationship  By : Kim Olver -
    It seems as if creating successful relationships with our significant others and parenting children are two of the most difficult jobs we face and yet we get no formal training in either.

As a result, people are increasingly likely to stay at home, to indulge themselves and to demand everything on their own terms. One great way to combine all three is to treat yourself to gorgeous jewellery...

  • Love In A Time Of Herpes  By : Christopher Scipio -
    I was born in 1965- a year often considered the first year of “generation-x”. The previous generation- the baby-boomers like my parents, grew up in a time of free love. My mother didn’t take advantage of this but my father sure did, but that’s another story.

  • Can I Be My Own Add Coach?  By : Tara McGillicuddy -
    Quite often I am in contact with people who discuss acting as an ADD Coach for their child or spouse.
